April 8, 2020

THIS WEEK

  • LATE REGISTRATION (reminder from Ellen Nichols)For the first three days of the quarter (Wed-Fri, April 8-10) registration will be open for students to add and drop classes that still have space.  If a class is full, however, they will not be able to overload without instructor permission.
    Registration after midnight on Friday, April 10 will require a special form that includes instructor and dean permission.  These requests will be very limited and should mainly be for students who have been attending but were dropped for some reason. Students will already face challenges taking classes remotely, and because it will likely take 2-3 days to get students into Canvas using late registration forms, we want to restrict the number of late registrations after this date.
  • SPRING OFFICE HOURS – Please send your SPRING office hours to Victor Sisavath.  Give available times to students in Canvas, or by e-mail, or however/whenever you plan to be available to them.
